TULSA, Okla. — Victory Church treated hundreds of single parent families to Disney on Ice and The State Fair.

"I am a single mom, this is my little girl, Desiree," Destiny Climpson said.

Climpson is a member of Victory. She and hundred of other single parents enjoyed the magic of Disney On Ice thanks to the church.

“It’s huge, my baby loves Elsa. This is a great time for us to experience Disneyland, but here in Tulsa,” Climpson said.

Her three-year-old, Desiree, couldn't contain her excitement. After the show, Victory also covered their admission into the fair.

Rosalia Pinacho was grateful to share special moments with her daughters. “We came as a family, we came to enjoy the fair, and we came to have a good time...and we’re representing Christ, which is the most important,” Pinacho said.

Victory Church's single parent ministry wanted 250 families to experience the fair fun like the rest of the families.

“You know, it’s very tough to be a single parent especially at this time in the country because of COVID, some of these single moms have lost their jobs. They cannot afford a lot of things or they cannot afford to come to the fair, some of them are struggling paying their bills, that’s why the church steps up and steps in to say ``you know what, we will take care of you,” Pastor Maria Clinkscales with Victory Church said.

Rachel McQueary said she's grateful for the support she's found in her church family. “I was amazed, especially when they called and said we were confirmed, I almost cried because I didn’t have any other way to bring my son to the fair so yeah, I was elated. We were elated,” she said.

She said opportunities like these don't come very often because the demands of life keep her pretty busy.

“Being a single mom, I’m working all the time and you get in the monotony and so being able to come out and be in the sunshine, it's beautiful weather," McQueary said. "It’s amazing!”

Victory Church's Single Parent Ministry also provides these families with other resources throughout the year that helps meet some of their needs.
